2019 l'Octroi Domaine Pierre Gaillard
Sourced from granitic sites in Cheri, Gonon, Cote Bellay & Boissey. Pierre is a real stickler for attention to detail in the vineyard, healthy fruit is the mantra. This is singing with bright floral fruit, white flowers, peach, apricot, a touch of well integrated oak and fleshy lees come through to add richness, but not at all overdone, like the big man himself, very elegant and refined for the size. Drinking range: 2021 - 2024 L&S (May 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Pierre Gaillard
Pierre Gaillard's passion for wine-making developed at an early age when he was discovered ploughing in the vineyard with a plough horse when only twelve years old. After studying oenology at Montpelier he went on to work for a large estate in Côte Rôtie where he steeped himself in the 'terroirs' and traditions of this famous vineyard. In 1981 he bought his own vines in St Joseph and revived the 'Clos de Cuminaille', an ancient vineyard dating back to Roman times. Since then he has bought vines in both Côte Rôtie and Condrieu.
